Release Date: March 3
This X-Men spinoff focuses on the possibly last portrayal of Hugh Jackman as the mutant Wolverine, unless of course, 20th Century Fox has more millions to shell out for the Australian actor. Now dishevelled and slowly losing his healing factor, he has to take care of an ailing Professor X and a young girl named Laura who is going to be X-23 if you know your X-Men comic lore.
7. Kong: Skull Island
Release Date: March 9
Samuel L.Jackson and co. charter off to the Pacific to explore an unknown island, only to discover that a bunch of monsters and a giant ape named King Kong reside there. The kicker about this film is that if this does well, a Godzilla vs. King Kong movie will definitely be out in the far future.
8. Beauty & The Beast
Release Date: March 16
A tale as old as time about a monstrous prince and a farm girl raised by a crackpot inventor falling for each other, and the village Adonis who comes between them. It’s also a tale ripe for a re-booting with a star-studded cast featuring Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (Beast), and Luke Evans (Gaston). Also, young Obi Wan plays a talking candlestick while Gandalf voices a talking clock. We’re still wondering if people really wanted this.
9. Power Rangers
Release Date: March 23
Speaking of unnecessary reboots, how about one revolving around a 90s kid’s show made out of stock Japanese Sentai footage? Five kids get sent to Angel Grove, cope with life, and also be given the burden of piloting giant dinosaur mechs and kicking ass as color-coded space enforcers.
10. Ghost In The Shell
Release Date: March 30
Based on the hit manga and anime, this new adaptation pits Scarlett Johanssen as The Major who has to bring down a cyberhacker, which then leads to a huge government conspiracy. As long as the spirit and nuances of the manga and anime are preserved, we’re down with this. Any chance we can get Yoko Kanno to do the soundtrack?
